Abstract :

The understanding of energy transfer processes in biological systems occurring among optical centres which exhibit in homogeneously broadened spectral bands is of paramount importance to determine time constants and spatial distribution of energy flow. Here we report a new time resolved-spectroscopy based on the own random laser generation of the optical probes. As an example, we experimentally investigate the excited state relaxation of rhodamine B molecules in an organic-inorganic hybrid material. We demonstrate that even in the case of spectral overlap between donor and acceptor (monomer and dimer) emissions, this kind of spectroscopy may resolve not only the spectral features of the system but also provide a high speed picture of the energy transfer and excited state relaxation of the involved optical probes. Our results can be easily applied to any kind of efficient interacting chromophore pairs embedded in inhomogeneous scattering structures such as biological tissues.
